The Barnes & Noble Review
Enterprise reporting can be a huge pain, even with third-party tools. But today’s increased focus on business intelligence makes it more crucial than ever. Microsoft’s new SQL Server Reporting Services simplifies the entire reporting lifecycle: authoring, management, and delivery. Brian Larson’s comprehensive new book is all you need to put it to work.

Larson, who consulted with Microsoft’s own development team, has been mentoring early adopters since the first betas. This book makes all that knowledge accessible to you, from the basics onward. Want to build graphical reports? Generate reports within reports? Convert Access reports? Create an enterprise-wide managed environment for reporting? Use a custom security model? All that’s here, and more. Reporting Services is one of Microsoft’s most exciting enterprise offerings in years. Read this book, and make the most of it. Bill Camarda
